Shawn Williams

  • Southbound Tavern 233 Cherry Street Helena-West Helena, AR, 72342 United States (map)

Hailing from New Orleans, her debut album Shadow (2017) is a skillfully-mastered collection of originals that moves seamlessly from old-school R&B-inflected rockers to softer, wistful numbers that evoke the broken-hearted melancholia of the desert. Idiosyncratic, catchy, and rich with local talent, the tracks showcase Williams’ impressive musicianship and unique capabilities as a songwriter. On recording as in live performance, she conveys a sense of rawness, a depth of feeling, and a lack of pretension that set her apart from the rest of the city’s pool of talented up-and-coming musicians.  

Shawn has opened for national touring artists such as the Queen of Rockabilly - Wanda Jackson, Corey Smith, The Accidentals, Todd O'Neill, Loverboy, and more.

Looking forward to her next album release in June of 2018 titled "Motel Livin"
